With so many firms to choose from, why choose CHA? Here are some highlights:
Build Your Practice at CHA
What is a practice builder? Practice builders are professionals who, over time, refine their technical and business development skills to the point where they have built a reputation among their clients as knowledgeable and trustworthy business partners. Our culture promotes, encourages and rewards practice builders. They are the core of our business, and every new employee is given the tools to join their ranks.
Unparalleled Training and Continuing Education
Our guiding principle "Continuous improvement is a way of life" reflects our emphasis on professional development. We offer a well rounded selection of technical and business management training sessions including basic and veteran two-year project management training programs.
Individualized Career Paths
Every individual has his or her own definition of a successful career. That’s why we emphasize regular career development planning, mentoring, and individual coaching sessions as intrinsic parts of our culture. We promote from within; in fact, the vast majority of our Partners and Principals started with us as junior-level engineers, planners, surveyors, technicians, and landscape architects.
An Emphasis on Community Involvement
We are proud of our contributions to our local communities through the professional work we do, as well as our extra-curricular activities. The efforts of our “Helping Other People” club have been well publicized, and we give our staff many opportunities to contribute to charities and participate in activities that positively impact our local, regional, and global communities.
CHA is a Fun Place to Work!
Building a career should not only be exciting, challenging and rewarding; it should be fun! Our people are the core of our practice; they work hard and their standards are high, but they know how to get the most out of their careers by enjoying their work environment. We encourage this culture by providing numerous activities and events, including lunchtime contests, fully-sponsored sports teams, golf leagues, social events, bus trips, and many others. In fact, CHA has been recognized as an employer of choice by regional and national publications, including CE News.
